“Good Italian.”
Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

Nice Italian restaurant near Devonport. Nice interior decor and friendly staff. A good selection of dishes on the menu and reasonably priced.
Only one gripe is that there is only one high chair so if there is more than one child in your group you may have problems.
Aside from that this is a good Italian.

“Bad, just bad”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

I just don't know where to start, the food here is so bland and awful it would make most Italians cry. I couldn't detect any fresh flavours, it really could have been ravioli out of a tin. Decidedly average, will not go back to any in the chain. The Macdonalds of Italian food.

“Yummy food”
Reviewed June 18, 2012

Food was fresh and tasted great. Atmosphere was a little sombre but it was a week day and very quiet in town.
